I loved today. Today was one of those days where you feel content with your life. Nothing incredible happened it was just nice. Happy Cat, happy Aly, happy S, and happy Mama.
We started off our day on an exciting adventure to SW Portland where we picked up a $5 bookshelf I bought off of a guy from Craigslist. Then we went to Washington Park and walked around Hoyt Arboretum. The kids got completely tired out and very, very hungry. We stopped on the way home at Fred Meyer, picked up some bread for sandwiches, and a gallon of paint for $5 (our lucky amount today) because it was on the returned paint shelf. We then went home and had some tasty PB&J sandwiches (kids favorites) and then the girlies went off to take naps (one of my favorite parts of the day). Then I was able to tackle a big gardening project in the yard, and got it almost done, just a little bit left to weed. It looks so much better but of course I didn't think to take any before and after pictures. S was able to work on his home studio and like me is almost done with that project. Then the kids woke up from their naps and we all hung out in front our house talking with the neighbors and the kids rode their trikes and bikes and scooters up and down the sidewalk. We stayed outside until it started to get a little breezy and then we had to drag our respective kids into our house for dinner. It was, like I said, a really nice day.
